Fancy a breast muffin?

Bakers of the Icelandic Association of Bakers will offer special breast muffins in their bakeries over the next weekend. The muffin will be topped with buttercream to make it resemble a breast.

The association has sold breast muffins over the Mother’s Day weekend over the past six years in support of charity “Göngum Saman”, which supports research into breast cancer. Mother's day in Iceland is on next Sunday.

In these six years the association has been selling the breast muffins they have gathered over 8 million ISK for the association “We plan to do even better this year, we’ve encouraged all bakers to participate. It’s great for us bakers to sell great muffins and support a great cause along the way,” says Jóhannes Felixson foreman of the Association.

Here’s a list of the bakeries that will sell the breast muffins over the weekend.
